Gaming News: 12/8/12 (The VGAs Edition)

Video Game Awards Tenth LogoSpike’s annual Video Game Awards were held Friday evening. Showcasing the best the gaming world had to offer in the last year, the VGAs have attempted to become the Emmy’s/Oscar’s/Grammy’s of the video game world.

Get your wallets reader everyone, Black Friday is almost upon us. And with that not only comes leftover turkey and delicious desserts for the upcoming weekend, but also great deals on video games! Many big retailers have released their advertisements for the shopping event, so you’d better start planning where you’re going, what you’re going to get, and how you’re going to deal with all those other people waiting in front of you in line! My suggestion? Don’t make a scene.

Oh, and something about George Lucas and Disney? I don’t know if you heard about that either… (more…)

Gaming News Snippets: 10/6/12

If you weren’t already sold on Assassin’s Creed III, perhaps some DLC involving a corrupt George Washington will sway your perceptions.
